Common interventional techniques (single versus combined) in management of hepatocellular carcinoma

Conclusion: The study showed that combined therapy achieved better results regarding complete response and overall survival rate than RF or TACE alone.

Bernd HelmsAbstractVitamin A (retinol) is important for normal growth, vision and reproduction. It has a role in the immune response and the development of metabolic syndrome. Most of the retinol present in the body is stored as retinyl esters within lipid droplets in hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). In case of liver damage, HSCs release large amounts of stored retinol, which is partially converted to retinoic acid (RA). This surge of RA can med...

Authors: Zhang Y, Ying X, Zhao Q, Ma J, Zhang D, He C, Han S Abstract Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignant tumor associated with a poor prognosis. Serum biomarkers of HCC have the potential to improve the diagnosis, provide a means to monitor the tumors, and predict their malignancy. Proteins that are expressed differentially between HCC patients and normal controls have the potential to be biomarkers. Method: Serum samples from 10 confirmed HCC patients and 10 controls were collected. The differentially expressed proteins in the serum were identified using an isobaric tags for relative and...

Authors: Yasuda D, Ohe T, Takahashi K, Imamura R, Kojima H, Okabe T, Ichimura Y, Komatsu M, Yamamoto M, Nagano T, Mashino T Abstract Resistance to anticancer agents has been an obstacle to developing therapeutics and reducing medical costs. Whereas sorafenib is used for the treatment of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), resistance limits its efficacy. p62, a multifunctional protein, is overexpressed in several HCC cell lines, such as Huh-1 cells. Phosphorylated p62 (p-p62) inhibits the protein-protein interaction (PPI) between Keap1 and Nrf2, resulting in the Nrf2 overactivation that causes drug resistance. We ...

ConclusionsLI-RADS shows high diagnostic accuracy in diagnosing of HCC with a pooled sensitivity of 0.86 and specificity of 0.85, and specificity is higher for LR-5 or LR ≥ 5. However, further prospective studies of LI-RADS are needed to elucidate its value for diagnosing of small HCCs (≤20 mm).
